What Are the Requirements For Wood To Make Charcoal?

As we all know, wood is yielded by trees. Wood has been used for fuel for thousands of years. In rural areas around the world, wood can be used for cooking and heating by burning. Today, people find that we can make higher calorific value and easy transportation of charcoal from wood. You just need to get the wood charcoal making machine. It is easy for you to make charcoal from wood. If you are the buyer of the charcoal making machine for sale, see the requirements and suggestions here.

Size of raw materials: The diameter size is less than 20mm.

Water content: Water moisture is less than 15%.

Large chunks of wood:

If your raw material is large chunks of wood, we need to equip a dryer and a crusher for your project. Commonly, the air-dried wood also retains 8-16% water content in the cell walls. So, you need to use a dryer to remove the excess water moisture. In order to have a better carbonization effect, you need to crush the wood into a small diameter size – less than 20mm.


Woodchips are a kind of small- to medium-sized pieces of wood. It is formed by cutting or chipping larger pieces of wood. If your raw material is woodchips, you can decide whether it is needed to buy a dryer and crusher. It is no need to equip them if the woodchips are less than 20mm and less than 15% water moisture. Also, you can specify your raw materials with us. We are glad to help you to make a choice.

Applications Of Wood Charcoal/Biochar

Applications Of Charcoal From Wood Charcoal Making Machine

Biochar, a form of charcoal produced from wood chips through a process called pyrolysis, has diverse applications across several fields. Here’s how it might apply to the previously mentioned contexts:

  1. Soil Remediation: Biochar can be used as a soil amendment to improve soil quality and fertility. Its porous structure helps retain moisture, nutrients, and beneficial microorganisms in the soil. Additionally, biochar’s high surface area can adsorb contaminants, reducing their availability for uptake by plants and aiding in soil remediation efforts.
  2. Carbon Sink: When added to soil, biochar can sequester carbon for an extended period, acting as a long-term carbon sink. By incorporating biochar into agricultural lands or degraded soils, carbon can be stored in the soil for hundreds or even thousands of years, helping mitigate climate change by trapping carbon dioxide.
  3. BBQ Charcoal and Hookah Charcoal: Biochar can be used as an eco-friendly alternative to traditional charcoal in BBQ or hookah applications. Its production from sustainable biomass sources and its potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions during pyrolysis makes it a more environmentally friendly option.
  4. Activated Carbon: Biochar can serve as a precursor to activated carbon. Through additional processing steps, biochar’s porous structure can be further activated to enhance its adsorption capacity for use in water purification, air filtration, or as an adsorbent in various industrial applications.
  5. Feed Additives: When added to animal feed, biochar can improve digestive health. That means, biochar can positively influence gut health by promoting the growth of beneficial gut microorganisms. This can enhance digestion, improve nutrient absorption, and potentially reduce incidences of digestive disorders in livestock.
  6. Alternative Fuels: Biochar can be utilized as a component in the production of certain biofuels. It can serve as a feedstock for producing syngas (a mixture of hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and methane), which can then be used as a fuel for electricity generation or as a precursor for liquid biofuels.
  7. Metallurgical Reducing Agent: While biochar itself might not be used directly as a metallurgical reducing agent due to its composition, its production through pyrolysis could yield byproducts that have potential applications in metallurgy or as reducing agents in specific processes.

In essence, biochar’s multifaceted properties make it a versatile material with potential applications across various sectors, from agriculture and environmental remediation to energy production and industrial processes. Its ability to sequester carbon and improve soil quality makes it particularly promising in efforts to mitigate climate change and improve sustainability.

Test Report of Charcoal From Wood

Wood charcoal making machine is a kind of industrial equipment. With it, the fixed carbon content is typically above 68.91%. And the quality of charcoal is superior to the charcoal you get from a pit kiln. The heating value of wood charcoal is much higher than just burning wood. Meanwhile, making wood charcoal is more eco-friendly than just burning wood. Wood burning can produce a lot of polluting smoke. While, there is no pollution in the whole wood charcoal manufacturing process. Here, we list some data about wood charcoal. It is the reference data for you. There would be a small deviation in the actual production process. Welcome to contact Beston to get more accurate data on the basis of your raw material.
